10 Taliban terrorists killed in two southern Afghan provinces

Ten Taliban terrorists were killed and four others wounded during clashes with the Afghan National Army soldiers in two southern provinces on Saturday, authorities said on Sunday.

In one incident in Helmand province, four Taliban were killed after army soldiers repelled an attack on security checkpoints in Yakhchal locality of Gereshk district, the army's 215 Maiwand Corps said in a statement.

In Zabul province, six militants were killed and four others wounded in similar incident in Shinkay district.

Taliban has not responded to the reports so far.

Violence still lingered in the war-torn country after a peace deal was signed between the United States and Taliban in Qatar late in February, which paved the way for a phased U.S. force withdrawal.

According to the agreement, some 10,000 U.S. and NATO forces stationed in Afghanistan will withdraw from the country by July next year.
